Madeleine Albright, the first female secretary of state, vouched for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Saturday and threw shade to young women who supported rival Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), The New York Times reported.

Sanders took the majority of votes from young women in the Iowa caucus, which Clinton ultimately won last week by a small margin.

Albright discussed the importance of electing the first female President while she introduced Clinton, the Times reported.

“We can tell our story of how we climbed the ladder, and a lot of you
younger women think it’s done. It’s not done,” Albright said. “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!”
